Glen Keane animated lead characters in Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, and many other classic Disney characters as he became a master of his craft. With his signature enthusiasm and optimism, Keane tells us the story of how this background led him to eventually directing his first feature film for Netflix: the heartwarming Over the Moon.

Of course, Keane had already become a director in his own right, winning an Oscar in 2018 for his short Dear Basketball, a collaboration with the late, great legend NBA Kobe Bryant. Keane discusses his unique, inspired collaboration with Bryant in the intimate setting of his home animation studio. Don't miss this rare chance to hear insights from one of the masters of the craft.
